Mori’s abusive father is behind bars…and she has never felt less safe. Threatening letters have started appearing on her doorstep, and the police are receiving anonymous tips suggesting that Mori --- not her father --- is the Regent’s Park killer. To make matters worse, the police are beginning to believe them. Through it all, Lock --- frustrating, brilliant, gorgeous Lock --- is by her side. The two of them set out to discover who is framing Mori, but in a city full of suspects, the task is easier said than done.
